INDEPENDENCE OF OFFICE OF THE SPECIAL PROSECUTOR

The President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo had both at the introduction of the nominee and the swearing-in ceremony of the first Special Prosecutor to the Office of the Special Prosecutor in January 2018 and February 2018 underscored “the requisite integrity, competence, courage, and independence of character to effectively discharge the responsibilities of this office.”

The President assured the nation and the Office as a matter of policy “that not only will the Executive, including the Attorney General, respect scrupulously the independence of his office, but will also provide him whatever assistance is required to enable him to discharge his high duties effectively, in the interest of the Ghanaian people.”

The President’s policy declarations are consistent with the guaranteed independent mandate in the execution of the functions of the Special Prosecutor under Office of the Special Prosecutor Act, 2017 (Act 959).
